I'm glad you and the pigs have somewhere nice to go for Christmas. I'm sure they wouldn't want to be away from you. It's great you're getting on so well with the flute. It is a beautiful instrument. I have been trying to play the flute on and off since I was about 4 (my sister had a flute and I always wanted to do everything she was doing) and never managed to get a note out of it. Well done for sticking with it, it sounds like it was so worth it.

The vet said i had beautiful pigs colour wise. he liked Spikes rosettes and Chocks coat. Spike ways slightly more than Chock but he is slightly smaller. He also said that i am looking after them really well as there coats are really shiney and their teeth are really good as well. I am well happy. :)

He plays guitar and piano. He gives me prays when i play flute. especially if i am playing something from his music that He listened to when he was growing up. Text my flute teacher last night to wish Her happy christmas and to tell her about the two new scales that i found on my own. She is well impressed at my dedication to the instrument too. What i tell people is this. If you wanna be good at your instrument you need to put in the practice time. I usually do five hours a day and thats a short practice session for me. I usually do ten hours a day but i have been really busy doing stuff so i aint been able to put in the ten hours but at least i am getting sometime to practice.

Today is gonna be a good one as i am gonna make it so. Not gonna listen to any nasty voices at all. Even if they start. I have to brake the hold they have over me but its so hard not to listen to them sometimes cause they can get so loud. My friends down here are so understanding of my illness as they are all mentally ill them selvs. thats why i wanna move down here. Cant say where i am for safety reasons inside my head. This is my heeling place. Hopefully it will be my home soon. Just hope i can find somewhere to live pretty fast as i aint happy living where i am now even though i have friends there. fingers crossed...

Had another good day yesterday. Found another scale on my flute. I wonder how many scales There are on that thing. It has sharps and flats where as my wooden and crystall flutes dont. i have more scope on my metal one as it has keys rather than holds that you cover over. Its also in a different key to my other two. They are all in different keys from each other. My metal one is in c major open scale with out any flats added in. My wooden one is in d major and my crystal one is in e flat. They all sound different as they are all different materials. My metal one is the heavyer one out of the three but it has the lightest action which is well strange.
